Revel in the ordinary for it is extraordinary
My children’s gentle hands have always fascinated me. The treasures they held so carefully, gazing at seemingly ordinary stones as if they were sparkling jewels. I feel the parallels of my own childhood – the glory of discovery in those extraordinary moments. Follow my latest art series as I explore these magical happenings.
"Meet My Friend"
Acrylic on Canvas - 24" x 36" - $2500 - Purchase online
The painting, Meet My Friend, celebrates a child's joy of ladybugs (called ladybirds to some). These marvelous little red creatures make our little people's faces light up and in turn cause us to smile as we share their delight.
Ladybugs also symbolize love, hope and spirit. Aside from their cute little shapes, it is no wonder children and even adults are fascinated by them!
"Mom is Going to Love These"
Acrylic on Canvas - 16" x 20" - $850 - Purchase Online
The painting, Mom is Going to Love These, pertains to that moment when you decide to enjoy your child's free spirit and revel in all its glory rather than think about the now short stemmed tulips no longer in the garden. The playful colours vibrate to mimic a child's imagination and sense of wonder. Children have so much to teach us.
30" x 40" Acrylic on Canvas - $3000 Purchase Online
The painting, Youthful Whispers, contains an encouraging childhood story line which speaks about the abundance of lessons we can learn from our own inner "whispers". Some of these include the joy of discovery, letting go, and being free. The seeds of the dandelion symbolize all of these whispers - seeded stalks many react to with dismay on pristine green lawns! However, not to be feared but seen in a more positive light, just like ourselves. Welcome the deeper message dandelions and their "offspring" bring.
